Picture this: You’re lounging outside with your family and friends, enjoying the hot summer day, the kids are splashing in the pool and the BBQ is going. Now imagine, there’s no need to run inside dripping wet from the pool as you have your very own outdoor bathroom!
Far from the old fashioned “out houses”, an outdoor bathroom is a stylish addition to the modern Australian garden. The popularity especially of outdoor showers has been growing over the last few years and it’s clear to see why. Not only are outdoor showers practical and convenient, they’re a luxurious garden addition and a stylish feature in their own right.
If you’re lucky enough to have a swimming pool, there have probably been many times where you’ve wished for an outdoor shower, and maybe even an outdoor toilet. How handy would it be to have a quick rinse after your swim before going inside? Saniflo’s grey water pump, the Sanifloor , enables shower installations 30m from the home, easily allowing the addition of an outdoor shower next to your pool, without the need to disrupt your garden. The Sanifloor connects to the mains via slim 25mm pipes, so you can install your outdoor shower without digging up your existing landscaping.
An alfresco shower is also a unique feature for your garden and when designing your garden space, you should consider enhancing the shower area to make it a real point of difference. If you have the availability, positioning the shower in front of a large window allows you to visually enjoy this beautiful garden addition when you are both indoors and out.
If you have the space, adding an outdoor toilet and basin in addition to your shower is a huge convenience. There’s nothing worse than the kids running inside dripping wet to use the facilities. To achieve an outdoor bathroom, Saniflo’s Saniaccess 3 can assist. The Saniaccess 3 can connect to a toilet, sink and shower and has the ability to pump water waste up to 100m back to the sewerage mains, allowing the addition of a bathroom anywhere in your garden.
